Westland, MI, January 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- After one year in development and beta testing, Safe T Services LLC announced that its premier web application "ThreadThat.com" is now available for general use. "Our goal was to build an application that would make encryption easy for anyone needing to protect their privacy while conversing on the internet" said Matt Schneider, owner of Safe T Services LLC. "Throughout the development cycle, we focused on providing an easy-to-use interface without compromising data security".
As the name implies, ThreadThat.com is built around the concept that conversations that take place over time can be organized into “threads”. As the FAQ for ThreadThat.com explains, all messages and files are protected from accidental discovery using AES 256-bit encryption while in-transit between the browser and web server and while at-rest on the database server. The site offers two levels of privacy - confidential and secret. The later requires the use of passkeys to protect thread content. A proprietary passkey manager is built in to make the use of passkeys less objectionable. Passkeys can be communicated to recipients using unsecured email without compromising security since those recipients must log into their account before they can access any threads.
Any email account(s) you own can be used with ThreadThat.com. The private content of your threads is never transmitted or stored unencrypted. Only notifications of new and updated threads are sent via email. Threads are addressed just like email and can be sent to anyone even if they do not have a ThreadThat account. Notification emails are automatically sent addressed from you and addressed to each recipient individually. If you address a thread to 10 people, ThreadThat.com sends 10 emails - one to each recipient email address. All recipients are required to create an account using their respective email addresses before they can access your threads.
Some of the security features in ThreadThat.com are:
* Secure Login
* Email account verification (proof of ownership)
* New IP address detection (email challenge to prevent unauthorized account use)
* Multiple session detection (concurrent logins from multiple locations not allowed)
* Session timeout (automatic logoff after specified amount of time)
Some security features can be disabled or customized in user preferences.
Other features in ThreadThat.com include:
* Unlimited attachments of up to 30M each
* Unlimited confidential and secret threads
* Anonymous accounts
* Delete messages and users from any thread you own
* Prevent recipients from inviting others to your threads
* "Read Only" threads
* Rich text controls to format thread content
* Automatic notifications to email and/or mobile device
* Notification template for new thread notifications
* Self maintaining address book
* Passkey manager
* Instant account and thread deletion
You can register all of your email addresses in one ThreadThat account. You can then select any email address you own for your thread notifications. This allows you to use a single ThreadThat account for communicating with family, friends, co-workers and clients.
This site was developed using Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 and SQL Server 2008, Telerik ASP.NET Ajax toolkit, Ajax Uploader ASP.NET Upload component and wodCrypt Active X Component. It is not necessary to download or install anything to use the service.
When asked "Why are you offering this service for free?", Schneider replied "If the site proves to be viable, then we expect to generate revenues through advertising. In the meantime, we invite everyone to use ThreadThat.com free of charge".
Although ThreadThat.com can be used by anyone wanting to protect their Internet privacy, it was also developed for individuals and businesses that must comply with HIPAA, but do not have an IT budget or IT staff to help them implement a HIPAA-compliant solution.
